Program Description

Our program has been around for 14 years, granting space and production support for people who are doing innovative work worldwide, across the arts and sciences. During their stay (3 weeks), participants use the hacienda grounds as a laboratory for the creative process and engaging with the local community. They are free to work whenever desired in the provided studios and anywhere in the property. Experimentation is encouraged as is discourse and collaboration. Because of the relative inaccessibility of the place and a desired cohesiveness of the group, all participants are required to be there the whole time, arriving and departing on specific dates and times. Group activities such as moderated discussions, screenings, artisanal workshops, yoga and meditation classes, and guided walks and fieldtrips to nearby towns and natural areas are often organized, depending on people’s interests. Participants are encouraged to involve the local community in their projects.
